Our Glendale Dentist Talks About Spring Cleaning Your Smile

Written by Dr. McKay on Mar 23, 2021

It’s that time of year; when we clean and refresh our spaces for the warmer months to come. Well, our Glendale dentists encourage you to apply the same principles to your smile! That’s right, it’s time to spring-clean your smile!

Professional Cleanings

Professional dental cleanings allow our dental team to clear away accumulated plaque and tartar, in order to give your smile a fresh slate. This type of cleaning is much more effective and powerful than at-home measures. The average dental patient should have a professional cleaning every six months—if it’s time for you to get back on track in terms of professional dental care, please give our team a call!

An At-Home Refresh

Every spring you should take the time to re-set your at-home oral hygiene tools and products. Make sure that your toothbrush isn’t more than a few months old. Evaluate your oral hygiene products—like floss and toothpaste—in order to ensure that they are meeting your needs and that they are not expired. Generally speaking, patients rarely replace their oral hygiene tools frequently enough. So, set a reminder to do so as part of your spring cleaning routine!


Now is a great time to make plans and intentions for your smile moving forward. If there is a particular aesthetic or health goal you would like to achieve, our dental team is here to help you succeed. Whether you want to lighten and brighten your smile, treat gum disease, or minimize bruxism, we’re here for you!

Take this opportunity to re-evaluate your oral hygiene routine, and improve your oral health. If you aren’t sure how to get started, you can always reach out to our Glendale dentists to learn more. We’re here to help!
